When a friendly, successful suburban teacher and father is prescribed cortisone for a painful, possibly fatal affliction, he grows dangerously addicted to the experimental drug, resulting in his transformation into a psychotic and ultimately violent household despot. "This Eisenhower-era throat-grabber, shot in expressive CinemaScope, is an excoriating take on the nuclear family. That it came in the day of Father Knows Best makes it all the more shocking -- and wildly entertaining."--Jacket

The 'Three colours' trilogy by Geoff Andrew( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Three Colours Trilogy by Krzysztof Kieslowski (1941-1996) is generally regarded as a major triumph of European cinema. An examination of how the ideals of the French Revolution--liberty, equality and fraternity--have meaning in modern life, the trilogy combines visual elegance, narrative complexity, and virtuoso performances to extraordinary effect. In this highly personal appreciation of the trilogy, Geoff Andrew analyzes how Kieslowski used his command of the cinema to open up the inner lives of his characters and to chart the way in which these lives are ruled by unseen forces. For Andrew, the trilogy is a poignant, thrilling hymn to the resilience of compassion in the face of adversity. Tracing the links between the trilogy and Kieslowski's earlier work, he argues that Blue (1993), White, and Red (both 1994) are the summation of Kieslowski's art. This book, which concludes with one of the last interviews Kieslowski ever gave, is a tribute to an exceptional filmmaker
Stranger than paradise : maverick film-makers in recent American cinema by Geoff Andrew( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As Hollywood has continued to unreel action spectaculars with budgets as extravagant as their special effects, American film has at the same time been revitalized by the growth of the "indie scene." This burgeoning cinematic culture is distinguished not only by the ability of young film-makers to perform magic on a low budget, but also by the stylistic freshness and thematic originality of their work. Stranger Than Paradise is a critical survey of that work - the films of the most talented, audacious, and influential American directors of the last two decades."--Jacket
10 by Geoff Andrew( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study, Geoff Andrew looks at 10 within the context of Kiarostami's career, of Iranian cinema's recent renaissance, and of international film culture. Drawing on a number of detailed interviews he conducted with both Kiarostami and his lead actress, Andrew sheds light on the unusual methods used in making the film, on its political relevance, and on its remarkably subtle aesthetic. He also argues that 10 was an important turning-point in the career of a film-maker who is not only one of contemporary cinema's most accomplished practitioners but also one of its most radical experimentalists.
